Is it true most anorexic people have high body fat percentages?

I've read most anorexic people have high body percentages because when people starve themselves for a long period of time, their bodies will burn off more muscles than fat. Is this true? I was kind of shocked when I first read this. I've always wondered why most anorexic people have bloated...

When should you start lowering your deficit?

I'm at about 17% right now. I know my maintenance calories are dropping and will consider that as well. Is say 13% a good time to reduce the deficit? If aiming for a certain body fat percent is not the right thing to do, how and when do you start reducing it and by how much?
